Press Release


INTRALOT’s implementation of the important project in Hamburg’s State Lottery “LOTTO HAMBURG” –is concluded, as the official launch took place and was announced during a press conference held earlier this day. LOTTO HAMBURG is the state lottery of Hamburg and has been operating for more than 50 years in the state. LOTTO HAMBURG has developed a network of 500 POS and generated €209.6 M. in sales in 2006.

After a period of hard development work, the new live lottery system -which is provided in a pilot context and that includes the customization and installation of LOTOS (the base platform of INTRALOT’s integrated gaming management system) along with the POS terminal software-, has been successfully launched in order to provide LOTTO HAMBURG with a modern state-of-the-art gaming system.

This investment was of strategic importance for INTRALOT, as it is the first time that LOTOS O/S is installed in the thriving German market and moreover it will be the “vaulting horse” for INTRALOT’s future activity in Germany as well as the strengthening of its presence in the E.U.

Mr. Siegfried Spies, the Managing Director of LOTTO HAMBURG, said: “Thanks to the cooperation with INTRALOT and the pilot operation of LOTOS O/S, we raised the foundation for a technology revolution. The magic formula is: use of standard products and standard technology. This is cost-saving and decreases own expenses for development. Looking back to the period of development, I can say that the cooperation with INTRALOT and ADESSO was very good, and it was fun to work towards presenting today to the market such good new solutions".

INTRALOT’s CEO, Mr. Constantinos Antonopoulos, stated: “The successful completion of the project proves INTRALOT’s strong commitment to its customers and its strong implementation capabilities to technologically advanced countries, as Germany is. This investment allowed us to better tailor our integrated gaming system for the demanding German market and provide LOTTO HAMBURG with a solution that meets its specific requirements. Finally, ? would like to thank LOTTO HAMBURG’s management and employees for the opportunity they gave to us to cooperate with them, as well as ADESSO for their professionalism”.
